• A rear coupon pocket
• 2 large compartments for notes
• A generous zipped coin section
• Options for a plain or panelled body and a wrist strap
• With gussets to the side to allow the wallet to open wide for ease of use

The flap closure means it secure and fashionable – the pattern comes with instructions for different closures including a regular magnetic clasp, a half-moon clasp and a twist lock, but you can use all sorts of feature fasteners.
